All is right when in London

I don’t think that it’s even begun to hit me that my new home for eight more weeks is Europe. This trip so far has been so surreal that I constantly feel as though I’m living a dream on repeat. I can’t even begin to put into words what these past four weeks have been like for me, but I can give you a little taste of what has been my favorite so far.

To wrap up week four, my best friend and I traveled to London. It is seriously the little things that get me through day-to-day adventures. London has my heart forever and I could honestly picture myself living there. There is so much beauty and love in this huge city. There is night life, city life, country side, and peaceful parks. London really has it all.

I got to visit and walk through the Green Park and oh my goodness, it took my breath away. This park is so magical and peaceful. The Green Park is something that you would see in a movie – there are dogs playing with each other, squirrels coming up to you waiting to be fed, and people strolling by. I had time to just reflect on my life and realize how fortunate I am to be living the life that I am. London has so much to offer and so many things reminded me of America, so much that I felt at home right when I stepped off the plane.

When I earlier said it’s the little things that get you by – it truly is. What I mean by that statement is that I’ve been craving M&Ms the whole time I’ve been here, well we stumbled upon M&M world and I literally could have cried tears of joy. I was so ecstatic that I customized my M&Ms to have my face on them. Some times it’s nice to get away from the group and have some time just to reflect upon yourself and be able to soak everything in. I can 100% say that I’ve fallen in love with London, and it will not be my last time there.

I’ll forever be grateful for this trip and all the experiences that I’ll gain along the way.
